What is a rectoscopy?
Rectoscopy is an examination of the rectum using a rectoscope, a tube-shaped instrument with an optical system and a light source. This test can be combined with other medical tests, for example, a histological examination. During the rectoscopy examination, detected polyps can be removed, and a biopsy can be taken – a piece of tissue for examination. The procedure is painless, but we always use local anesthesia. After the procedure, you receive a reminder and a basket of tools to take home. Prescriptions for medicines are written for a week.
